Depicts a theme comprising the motif of St George and the dragon which was used on British gold sovereigns and crowns from 1817 until now. The coin also reflects the theme of the R5 coin, which celebrated former President Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday.

Also, the Natura coin reflecting the black rhinoceros is included to highlight the plight of rhino at the hands of poachers, as well as the 20 cent coin reflecting the king protea, which is one of the country’s national symbols. It also depicts the farthing, in use from 1923 to 1960, which depicts two sparrows on a mimosa branch. The coin also sports the third Governor, Dr M H de Kock, who was in office from 1 July 1945 to 30 June 1962.
